Jersey

Gorey boat yard redevelopment approved

Plans to redevelop the old Gorey boat yard and shop in Jersey have been agreed by the planning authority.

The quarry site and shop would be developed into a new restaurant and delicatessen with shops, courtyards and terraces, the Planning Department said.

The department acknowledged it received two petitions, 100 online comments and 750 flyers against the proposals.

Officials said that, although parking be could difficult, the restaurant would not make a big difference.

Public transport to and from the area was excellent, they added.
